One of the most revolutionary pistols in the world, the composite made Glock 17 is the first in the series. With over 45 nations regularly using the pistol, the Glock 17 comes in three variants. The standard 17, which can be made amphibious quickly, 17L which is a long barrel version used normally by shooters, and the 17C, which features an integrated compensator for quick follow up shots. All models are without safety catches, due to the three independent safeties activated by the trigger pull.
|Wt:||17: 0.625 kg
17L: 0.670 kg
A smaller more compact version of the Glock 17, the 19 has many interchangeable parts. Like the 17, the 19 comes in a C variety, for the integrated compensator, allowing a reduction in muzzle jump and for faster and more accurate follow up shots.

A further development of the Glock 17, the 20 is a 10mm pistol, while the 21 is a .45 ACP. The 20 is made in a C variant as well, which reduces muzzle rise, and allows for faster and more accurate follow-up shots.
|Glock 20 10mm||SA||2||1-Nil||1||15||4||-||15|
|Glock 20C 10mm||SA||2||1-Nil||1||15||3||-||15|
|Glock 21 0.45 ACP||SA||2||Nil||1||13||4||-||15|
Changing to the increasingly popular .40 S&W round, the 22 and 23 are almost identical to the Glock 17. The C model allows for faster and more accurate follow-up shots. The 24 and 24C are competition pistols.
Glock 26/27/29 Pocket Pistols
This pocket pistol was introduced in the second half of 1995. A favourite with special agents and the like, the Glock 26 is hardly noticeable, and is a proven pistol already. The 27 was upgraded to the .40 S&W, though does not handle as well. The 29 was re-chambered for the 10mm round.
